The mission of Future Sacramento is to provide volunteer mentoring and scholarship funding to local financially-qualified students in support of their college education.

  • Since 2010, we have awarded 97 annual scholarships to local students, providing $560,000 in scholarship awards.
  • Future Sacramento annually provides mentoring to an average of 8 high school candidates and 20 college recipients.
The Future Foundation of Sacramento, Inc. (Future Sacramento) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.

  • With only one staff person, Future Sacramento operates thanks to a volunteer Board of Directors, additional volunteers and program supporters.
  • Donations stay local – only Sacramento area recipients are eligible.
    Future Sacramento values are to:

    • Incentivize college education for local first-generation college students and their families.
    • Break down barriers to higher education, opening opportunities for professional careers.
    • Meet financial need of local students and their families.

    Future Sacramento is more than a scholarship program.

    • We provide mentorship beginning the summer after students' 10th grade year, college graduation.
    • We help students apply to and enroll in the university of their choice.
    • We advocate for students to receive all financial aid for which they are eligible, before providing scholarship funding for remaining need.
    • We fund renewable scholarships for up to five years in college.
    • We teach students money management and the importance of responsible financial stewardship.
